    Actually, we are already being forced to follow the rules of the Bible. You see, the 10 Commandments ban murder and theivery, and today the Christian majority has imposed laws on us forcing everyone to follow these rules. ONOZ THEOCRACY!!!

    Hardly. Christian didn't invent laws against murder and thievery and they aren't necessary to have them. Nations of every religion, and no religion, have the same laws.

    Exactly. Which is why it is ridiculous when people argue that a stance on an issue that can be in any way justified with the Bible violates the separation of church and state.

    Okay. But I don't think those people are talking about murder and thievery laws.

    No, they are not talking about any laws at all at this point. They are supposing that he might, since he is religious, use that as a basis for how he votes, and since he might, maybe, possibly do something they don't agree with, and since he is religious, that is a problem in their eyes. Yes, it's stupid, yes, it's assinine, but that is what some are doing.

    I could care less what a politician's religious beliefs are as long as they don't hamper him from doing his job. That isn't the point of this article. When the man made an accurate statement of his views, he was so villified in Alabama that he's had to come in and do damage control as a literalist. THAT is theocracy, because it is requiring a litmus test of religious views for election to higher office.

    You'd be a lot smarter if you stopped smoking dope. As it is, you're a ****ing maroon.

    Until recently we were "not ready" for a black president. Were we a race-ocracy?

    Until 1920 only men could vote. Were we a sex-ocracy?

    The minimum ages for Congressmen, Senators, and Presidents are 25, 30, and 35 respectively. Are we an age-ocracy?

    Poor people pretty much never hold elected office. Are we a class-ocracy?


    I don't think you really understand what a theocracy is.

    We certainly were until blacks could vote.

    Yes.

    I get your point, but I just had to be a technical jerk about these two.
